the men are u.s. citizens. originally though from pakistan. they could get life in prison. there is a stalemate. let's not kid ourselves. that's the quote today from speaker of the house john boehner about the battle over the so-called fiscal cliff. that's the combination, of course, of spending cuts and exexpiring tax breaks set to kick in about a month from now. economists say it could cause another recession. today, the president visited a toy factory in pennsylvania to make his case for his plan. he is asking americans to pressure congress to extend tax cuts for the middle class right now. in fact, extend tax cuts for everybody for the first $250,000 of income. so the families won't have to worry about a new year's day tax hike. republic leaders say letting the tax cuts expire on income of more than $250,000 would hurt small businesses and, as they call them. job creators. let's get to ed henry who is with us from the white house tonight. president says the election proved most americans are on board with this plan. >> that's right. he, without using the word thinks he
't see the house doing that. look, with $16 trillion in debt and growing every minute, the u.s. governmental is obviously looking for ways to reduce it. that is the whole point in this thing. president is proposing new spending, more spending, has that convinced some people on the hill, that is your beat, that he is either not serious about negotiating or is naive about how economically grave the situation really is? >> the parties are divided in a way that i element never seen in many years covering capitol hill. republicans telling me they were more than willing to talk about a tax rate increase. even some of the most conservative members but what they felt they needed to see was sizable spending cuts and talk of entitlement reform which is major driver of the nation's debt but none of that has come forward. with democrats are not even in that level of conversation now. they do not want major cuts and they don't want to touch medicare or social security or medicaid. but republicans say you need to start tackling now. >> gregg: the president has ignored recommendations from hi
secretary leon panetta announcing that the u.s. is sending patriot missiles and troops to turkey to deal with the growing threat from the neighboring syria. 400 troops will join nato forces and stand ready to act if syria intends to unleash chemical weapons. fox's leland vittert is in our middle east bureau. leland, just a few days ago the head of nato said the assad regime is about to collapse. why deploy these troops now? >> reporter: it really has to do with showing solidarity with the turks who are clearly very scared and timing comes a couple days after we learned that the syrians were mixing chemical weapons to possibly use. so this is the united states and nato's way of really get being behind turkey, a close ally saying we support you. the secretary of defense was quick to point out that the patriot missiles are just that, defensive weapons that will be put down along the syrian border to protect syria, protect turkey from attacks by syrian jets or scud missiles that would fly in but that is not exactly the whole story. the patriots could be easily programmed and put in a no-fly
business correspondent for "u.s. news & world report." i want to ask you about the tax increase if there is no deal and tax rates rise, when would workers begin to see that reflekr reflected in their paychecks? when does the pain start? >> this is not one tax hike. this is about nine different sets of taxes. and the one that would go up right away is the payroll tax. that was cut temporarily in 2 009, cut by two percentage points and will go back up by two percentage points and that would come out of workers' paychecks right off the bat. it would add up to something like $60, $70 a month for the typical worker. we hear about all the tax rates that are going up, that actually wouldn't involve money that is in people's pockets until they actually pay their taxes or do their tax returns the following year. because that's when they would have to calculate the amount they owe and whether they paid enough taxes in 2013. so the good and bad news about that is that is not going to affect people right away, but that also means they can put that one off for a long time and we could go --

's not like the debt ceiling where, if you hit that point and you haven't resolved something, the u.s. defaults on its credit. there's still very serious ramifications, but i think there's this expectation that, even if the fiscal cliff is hit, they will continue to work, try to hash out a deal. the pressure will only increase, obviously, as americans respond and the markets respond. so they would try in the days following still to reach an agreement. >> all right. we're going to be following you throughout the day, brianna. we hope some progress is made. thanks again, appreciate it. want to look beyond the politics here and go straight to the bottom line. how much do we all stand to lose if these talks actually fail. the tax policy center crunched out some numbers. they're pretty amazing, when you look at this. if you're single with no kids, you're going to see taxes go up by $1,500 a year. the news is even worse for a married couple with two kids making $100,000. they'd see their taxes go up $5,300 a year. cnn's christine romans is here to answer another question. who's going to be
